BULLDOGS COME UP ONE GOAL SHORT IN 4-3 LOSS IN KITCHENER

The Hamilton Bulldogs went into the game Friday night in Kitchener without Robert Thomas (5-game suspension), Mackenzie Entwistle (upper body injury) and then lost Will Bitten with an injury, but still put in a gutsy effort in a 4-3 loss to the Rangers.

The Bulldogs came out of the gate with a lot of jump and got a couple of good scoring chances early, then a friendly bounce led to a Brandon Saigeon (28) goal. It took the Rangers over 6-minutes to get their first shot on goal and then late in the period they tied the game 1-1.

Kitchener took their first lead mid-way through the 2nd period only to see Hamilton tie the game 2-2 three minutes later as Brandon Saigeon (29) got his second goal of the game. The Bulldogs had a hard time staying out of the penalty box and the Rangers took advantage with a late power-play goal to take a 3-2 lead.

The Bulldogs kept the pressure on and out-shot the Rangers 14-4 in the 3rd period. Brandon Saigeon (30) completed his hat-trick at 13:19 to tie the game 3-3 only to see Kitchener score, what turned out to be the game winner, just 28-seconds later.

The Bulldogs out-shot the Rangers 45-30.

Kitchener goal scorers were Kole Sherwood (21), Logan Stanley (13), Joseph Garreffa (8) and Austin McEneny (5).

3 Stars:

1)  Logan Brown (KIT)

2)  Brandon Saigeon (HAM)

3)  Mario Culina (KIT)

The loss drops Hamilton’s season record to 32-12-3-3.

The Bulldogs return home to FirstOntario Centre to face the Mississauga Steelheads Saturday night at 7 pm.
